I have a Vudoo that resides in a Manners PRS 1 and topped with a NF 7-35 ATACR. I've shot steel out to 450 yards with it. I can only imagine that the bullet is coming in like a mortar shell on the target at that distance. It's crazy accurate and tons of fun shooting suppressed.

Well, I don't have any of the ultra-spiffy brands of rifles mentioned here - I've never even seen a Vudu, or however it's spelled, but I have three older .22cal rifles in my collection of seven that might qualify as upper-level rifles. Not for the cost, but for the results. I can't post images here, mainly because my Japanese computing equipment does not use MS DOS, but something else inscrutable, so I'll link you to a Youtube video instead.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddXPYYh1yuw

This old Anschutz Model 1409 was literally just ONE minute away from being put in the trash/scrap pile of old rifles making way for a couple of new ones in our club here in UK. It was, as you can read in the accompanying blurb, found in the back of a damp old gun safe that I never knew existed. It was covered with a light layer of surface rust on every exposed metal surface, and the butt plate was 'mouldy' with white alloy erosion. No sights, either. I could not believe that any gun in this condition would shoot, but I pushed the barrel through, getting a 12" long oily dust bunny out, revealing a like new bore. Good so far. I put my spare set of Walther sights on it and took it to the firing point, and using five rounds of SK match I shot a single slightly raggedy hole at 25m. I can email a pic anybody interested. The club secretary and I struck a deal - £25 and it was mine - at that time, around $45.

Luckily for me - this is UK remember - I had applied for, and obtained authorisation for another .22 rifle a short while earlier, and was able to take the poor orphan home with me that night.

Using an Anschutz king bolt torque wrench to make sure of resetting it correctively, I stripped all the non-wooden bits off, revealing pristine bluing where the stock had protected it. How to clean up the rust is the subject for another post, if anyone has been reading thus far and is still interested.

The stock was an easy job, but still took me three weeks of hand refinishing, and the butt-plate was revived thank to a tub of 'Mother's metal polish' and much elbow grease.

It's NOT a Vudu, of course, but it still puts a box of ammunition into less than 3/4" at 100m - outdoors.

The scope you see in the video is an old Tasco T707 from the late '60's - a x16. That has an interesting back-story too, something I owe to a reader here in SIG forum.

The barrel harmoniser is an ongoing, and so far interesting, experiment that really does seem to work, at least with the three different brands of ammunition I shoot. If I told you that it shoots something else better than Tenex, you might not believe me, but it's true.

Apologies for the overly long post. Perhaps if I'd invested in a Western system computer it might have been a lot shorter.

tacfoley, I assume it’s still all right for me to post your photos of the rifle and groups that you sent me some time ago. (Very nice gun and results, BTW.)

You are welcome, tac, and I encourage everyone else to post groups, even if it’s just one from the refrigerator.* And please let us know what ammunition you used.

* “Refrigerator group”: The one you cut out from the rest and stuck on your refrigerator to admire from time to time. Mine aren’t on the refrigerator, but rather on a pegboard panel in my work room. Wink

I have a CZ 457 AT One and it's a shooter. I have not worked out all the ammo preferences yet but so far it likes Norma Tac and SK match really well. I have had custom built guns that did not shoot as well as it does.

All threads evolve over time, and although this is the long gun section, there’s nothing wrong with posting about other accurate (excuse me, “precise”) guns. Smile

Nice shooting, BTW.

Took the Anschutz 1416HB out today. Not ideal shooting conditions for sure. The wind was gusting between 10-20 from SW. Beautiful day just really windy. Shot some SK Standard Plus, SK Rifle Match, CCI Standard V, and RWS Rifle Match. The best group came with SK STD Plus. Still trying to learn technique from the bench as well. Had fun and look forward to some more range time. Cherry picked the best group 50 yds. 5 rounds. .410 OD/.246 CC.
